Sharing is caring

And "The speed of friendliness"

Sharing is caring. And especially important to remember in these uncertain times we're all facing. Umbraco CEO, Kim Sneum Madsen and Umbraco Founder, Niels Hartvig will tell you how we plan to share and care: 

Sharing is caring

Three words often used in the world of open source, but with such a beautiful message that they should be shared across our entire globe in these times.

Times that are uncertain. Times when everybody tries to predict what can’t be predicted.

Perhaps times like these need fewer predictions and fewer opinions. Perhaps it’s times like these where it really makes fucking sense to be friendly. 

To leave that extra package of toilet paper in the supermarket and instead pass one roll from the package you already got to someone unable to go themselves.

The speed of friendliness

Uncertainty means we don’t know how long these times will last. It could be months, it could be the rest of the year, perhaps even longer.

It’s in times like these that the modern civilization gets under pressure and our reptile brains are screaming to take over. But it’s in times like these that we should all defend the core principles that got us here. 

We believe that it starts by being friendly and we believe that the power of friendliness can spread faster than the power of Corona.

We’ll walk the walk and starting from today, the following initiatives will be in effect:

  • We have announced a price increase of Cloud project created prior to 2020 per April 1st. We postpone this until July 1st. SUITS will reach to partners and Cloud Powerhouses. 

  • The changes in partner discounts also announced to be in effect April 1st are postponed until July 1st. We will reach out to you. SUITS will reach out.

  • Certified Partners subscriptions due in Q2 2020 will have their subscription period extended with 3 months. Free of charge but keeping the benefits of the program. SUITS will contact you. 

  • We have extended the deadline for the Umbraco 7 to 8 Bridging Courses to end of June 2020.

  • Access to HQ Zoom accounts for meetup organizers to conduct online meetups that go beyond the standard 40 minutes. Reach out to Ilham.

  • Arnold/Ilham are setting up an YouTube channel for the community to stream the Zoom meetups to and use afterwards the videos to share with the general community 

  • Online Friday Bar for community and HQ Friday March 27th 1600 hrs CET

Local activities Coding Pirates community (WIP):

Be that human. Be that Company.

Loved by developers, used by thousands around the world!

One of the biggest benefits of using Umbraco is that we have the friendliest Open Source community on this planet. A community that's incredibly pro-active, extremely talented and helpful.

If you get an idea for something you would like to build in Umbraco, chances are that someone has already built it. And if you have a question, are looking for documentation or need friendly advice, go ahead and ask on the community forums.
